ABC 7 Storm Watch – Making Fake News

Supposedly: Stormwatcher Lucy Yang braving terrible New Jersey flood back in 2010 March 12-15

SUPERSTORM Sandy certainly did have a devastating effect on America this week, but one TV reporter was found out to be less than truthful about the impact of the extreme weather.

Apparently marooned on a rubber dinghy in the middle of a flooded New Jersey Street, Lucy Yang was speaking live from the affected region for ABC News.

But, while she was claiming that the use of boats was the only way residents could get around their town, one unfussed man walked through the background of the shot with the water lapping only just above his ankles.
